Briefly describe your issue below:
All desktop applications that require elevated privileges pop up the password box twice. Interestingly, VSCodium, which requires a certificate to push up to the Git repository requires you to key in the certificate password (not my password) twice also.
This is rather irritating. I suspect one of the PAM modules or Mate is responsible for this, as it does not seem to be specific to the OS itself (I see other users complain about the same problem on other platforms). I’m used to the command line prompting the user twice for elevated privileges, but having a popups GUI’s pester you a second time in a desktop environment is a bit annoying. Does anyone know what the fix for this is?
